Budget cooking: Try this recipe for peanut bread

By: By The Associated Press

This easy, inexpensive quick bread is delicious as is. For more whole grains, substitute white whole-wheat flour for the all-purpose. And if you see a bargain on brown bananas at the grocer, add a few of those, too.
Made as directed, this recipe costs just $1.61 per recipe, or 16 cents per serving.
THREE-GRAIN
PEANUT BREAD
Start to finish: 1 1/2 hours (10 minutes active)
Servings: 10
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spices or cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly coat a loaf pan with cooking spray or oil.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oatmeal, cornmeal, dry milk, sugar, pumpkin pie spices, baking powder and salt. Add the peanut butter and use two butter knives to cut the peanut butter into the dry ingredients until it looks coarse and crumbly. Alternatively, combine all of the dry ingredients and the peanut butter in a food processor and pulse.
In a small bowl, beat together the egg and milk. Add to the dry ingredients and mix well. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour 10 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and cool completely.
